The Razer Viper Mini is an excellent wired gaming mouse. It's the smaller version of the regular Razer Viper and is one of the lightest mice we've tested so far. While its sensor performance isn't quite as good as the other mice in the Viper lineup, it's still superb and its low click latency ensures a responsive and lag-free gaming experience. Due to its small size, it's best suited for a fingertip grip, and any hand size should be able to use it with this grip type. Unfortunately, it doesn't have as many additional side buttons as the other Viper mice, but on the bright side, every button is programmable.

Our Verdict

7.2 Office/Multimedia

The Razer Viper Mini is a good mouse for office or multimedia use. Its straightforward design feels comfortable enough to last a full work day and it has two additional buttons on the left side which can be reprogrammed. Unfortunately, its mouse wheel doesn't have any L/R tilt buttons or horizontal scrolling to help scroll through Excel spreadsheets. Its scroll wheel is also incremented and can't be unlocked to infinite scroll through long websites or large documents. On the bright side, the mouse is compatible with both Windows and macOS, and while you can only customize it on a Windows PC, you can save your settings on the mouse and use them on a Mac.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Outstandingly low click latency.
  • Superb sensor performance.
  • Great cable with minimal kinks and drag.
Cons
  • Small design may not be comfortable for larger hands.
  • CPI range isn't as wide and adjustable as most Razer mice.
8.7 Video Games (FPS)

The Razer Viper Mini is a superb FPS gaming mouse. It's very lightweight, and its incredibly low click latency means even competitive gamers shouldn't notice any delay or lag. The sensor performance is also excellent, and while its max CPI isn't quite as high as some other options, it's likely still higher than most people will use. Every button on the mouse can be reprogrammed within the software, and the cable is flexible and doesn't create drag on the desk. The mouse is also quite comfortable and should be suitable for any hand size with a fingertip grip.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Outstandingly low click latency.
  • Superb sensor performance.
  • Great cable with minimal kinks and drag.
Cons
  • Small design may not be comfortable for larger hands.
  • CPI range isn't as wide and adjustable as most Razer mice.
7.7 Video Games (MMO)

While the Razer Viper Mini is a very good mouse for MMO games thanks to its outstanding sensor performance and click latency, it doesn't have nearly as many additional buttons as dedicated MMO mice. There are only two additional side buttons, though every button on the mouse can be remapped, and you can set a profile switch button to add an additional layer. The Viper Mini should be comfortable and well-built enough to last through the longest of gaming marathons.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Outstandingly low click latency.
  • Superb sensor performance.
  • Great cable with minimal kinks and drag.
Cons
  • Small design may not be comfortable for larger hands.
  • CPI range isn't as wide and adjustable as most Razer mice.
9.0 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Razer Viper Mini is a remarkable mouse for fans of ultra-light gaming. Despite having a traditional, non-honeycomb pattern, it's still among one of the lightest mice we've tested so far. Its gaming performance and click latency are both superb, and it should be quite comfortable for any size hand with a fingertip grip.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Outstandingly low click latency.
  • Superb sensor performance.
  • Great cable with minimal kinks and drag.
Cons
  • Small design may not be comfortable for larger hands.
  • CPI range isn't as wide and adjustable as most Razer mice.
5.1 Travel

The Razer Viper Mini isn't recommended for travel. Like most wired gaming mice, it's designed to stay at home with your gaming setup, and its wired-only design will likely be cumbersome in a tight space, like on a plane. On the bright side, it's quite small and lightweight, and should easily fit into most larger laptop cases.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Outstandingly low click latency.
  • Superb sensor performance.
  • Great cable with minimal kinks and drag.
Cons
  • Small design may not be comfortable for larger hands.
  • CPI range isn't as wide and adjustable as most Razer mice.

Unlike other mice in the Viper lineup that have two side buttons on both the left and right side of the mouse, the Razer Viper Mini only has two additional buttons on the left side. On the bright side, you can reprogram every button on the mouse, including the up/down scroll. You can also set one of the buttons to switch profiles, giving you extra layers. If you'd like a G-Shift button that gives you a second layer of customization, check out the Logitech G MX518 Legendary.

The Razer has substantially better click latency, and though it doesn't have as wide of a CPI range, you can set the CPI much more precisely thanks to its companion software that also allows for button customization, sensor adjustments, and lighting profiles.

DELUX M800 Wireless

The Razer Viper Mini and the DELUX M800 Wireless are both FPS gaming mice, but the Razer is a wired model, and the DELUX is wireless. The Razer has a lighter weight, smoother-gliding mouse feet, and a sturdier-feeling build. Its sensor is more consistent, and its click latency is significantly lower.
